Temex provides update on Webequie Noront area activities



    TORONTO, Feb. 29 /CNW/ - Temex Resources Corp. (TSX Venture Exchange:TME,
Frankfurt:TQ1) ("Temex" or "the Company") provides the following update on its
activities on the Webequie Project in the area of the Noront Resources Ltd.
Double Eagle Project.
    Since Noront Resources Ltd. ("Noront") first released its initial
assessment of the discovery drill holes into its Eagle One
nickel-copper-platinum-palladium ("Ni-Cu-PGE") deposit, Temex has been
actively positioning itself to become the largest property interest holder in
the Webequie or McFaulds Lake area. To that end the Company embarked on an
extensive staking and partnership program that started even before any assay
results were available from the initial Noront drill holes and that program
has continued until present.
    The Company and its partners have now commenced extensive airborne
geophysical surveys that will provide the basic data to evaluate the potential
for the properties to host various types of mineralization including Ni-Cu-PGE
deposits (similar to Noront's Double Eagle), volcanogenic copper-zinc deposits
(similar to KWG Resources Inc. and Spider Resources Inc.), gold targets
(similar to Lake Shore Gold Corp. and Superior Diamonds Inc.), and diamond
deposits (similar to De Beers Canada Victor Mine). The first priority targets
will be Noront type targets that in general are readily apparent from analysis
of only magnetic and electromagnetic data resulting from the airborne
geophysical surveys. Once the airborne data is available, the Company will
determine the logistics and timing for a near term follow-up program of ground
geophysics and diamond drilling.
    Commented Bruce Durham, Executive Chairman, "As the largest property
interest holder in the Webequie - McFaulds Lake area we are excited to hear of
Noront's discovery of a second area of nickel-copper mineralization and we
remain convinced, as we were at the initiation of our land acquisition
program, that this area is going to be Canada's next significant new mining
camp. We have positioned ourselves to be one of the most aggressive explorers
in the area. With our geophysical data just beginning to arrive we are now
preparing to ramp up our exploration for the next Noront type discovery."
    The company's activities to date include the acquisition of property
interests in more than 7,500 mining claim units covering more than 300,000
acres. Through various prospecting arrangements and option agreements the
Company has interests in these properties varying from 100% interest to
residual royalty interests. In addition to land acquisition, Temex and its
partners have initiated airborne geophysical surveys over nearly all of the
properties. For almost all of the properties this will be the first detailed
geophysical data ever collected over the properties and the first recorded
exploration on the properties. A map illustrating the land holding in which
Temex has an interest is included in the recent presentation posted on the
Company website.
